Wild Card Wednesday: Slip and Sheer

Slip dresses have been a wardrobe favorite of mine since the 1990s.  While my slip dresses of the 90s were mostly florals on a black background, now, I love finding slip dresses in solid colors and various fabrications, like this faux leather one from ELOQUII.

What do you think – should I go a little shorter with the dress?
